Former President A P J Abdul Kalam summarized the essence of Leadership Training when he gave a regaling talk to an enthralled audience at a “Times Avenues” event on career options. [Kalam Tell Students To Follow Their Heart, Times of India – June 23rd, 2009]
Speaking in his typical anecdotal manner, Kalam doled out advice on issues ranging from current prospects for aeronautical engineering to the need for reform in appointment of primary school teachers.
The key point he made to the students was to follow their heart. It had the audience both amused and inspired.
I completely agree with Kalam’s viewpoint. Following one’s heart is the most vital ingredient of success to all that we do. It is possible to achieve both success and happiness by pursuing the kind of life, career or hobby that we are deeply interested in. Recounting episodes from his childhood, Kalam stressed that he was able to succeed in what he did because of his passion for what he did, that automatically tied to the will to succeed.

So always remember to do something that is close to your heart. In doing so, there is no coercion, and all your energy is effortlessly harnessed towards achieving what you set out to achieve. This will lead to happiness and fulfillment in life.
This is the underlying theme of all the soft skills training programs that are run by MMM Training Solutions. None of this training will be useful or impactful unless each one of the participants nurture a strong desire to change.
